Research in Humanities is divided across two distinct areas:  English (Literature, Language and Linguistics and Creative Writing) and History. Alongside these research areas we also have our American Studies research grouping, which draws on researchers from both English Literature and History.

As a Department we pride ourselves on delivering research-informed teaching across all areas, and our research is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), The British Academy, Leverhulme and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

To view a more in depth look at individual research, as well as our research groups and collaborative projects in English, History and American Studies please visit the relevant pages.
